Finger Weaving

Course Overview

Finger weaving is an ancient weaving structure which requires no loom equipment. It was therefore, a very convenient and portable way for nomadic people to produce fabric even though limited to narrow bands. From voyageurs sashes to contemporary hat­bands the technique developed into many traditional patterns. Students will be taught the basic weave and terminology and advance towards techniques used to create traditional designs. We will use acrylic yarns as they are easiest to work with for beginners, but feel free to bring woolen yarns if preferred.
